Jan 17, 2010 - My Mountain




My Mountain

All of my life
I have been climbing a mountain
And been beset often, by vast days of strife
I never quite reach the top
Yet, I keep climbing and I'll never stop

I have been fighting a battle
Sometimes with each step that I take
Fighting off demons with angels
While deciding what to keep or forsake

The vision of truth in my destination
Some days is so very unclear
Of which paths I should be taking
And of which paths
I should steer clear

No matter how hard this endeavor
Ever it shall become
To get to the top of this mountain
I shall persistently climb

Learning always
From all my mistakes
Until, my journey

Is done

We all have mountains to climb Neva. Some of us will succeed, some will give up too soon, and some won't try at all. I bet you will be one of those who succeed.
